This week I had a moderate breakout on the right side of my face. Nothing worse than I normally have, but still upsetting. I haven't really had any active acne on the left side of my face all week, just lots of red hyperpigmentation. I took pictures this morning and I think my skin looks slightly better in real life. Although my skin is still very red, my make-up goes over a lot smoother. The skin on the left side of my face looks almost completely smooth with foundation, and the only problem with the right side is the bumpy texture where I've had new spots.

Even though it's only been a month, and I was told that Lymecycline/antibiotics are very slow-working, I feel like my skin is improving. I know that a lot of people say that antibiotics only work in the short-term and are not an effective solution to acne, but this is the first proper medical treatment I've tried and so I'm definitely going to see this through. My skin has been a little dry first thing in the morning, but nothing major. I've started feeling a little nauseous in the morning when I take the Lymecycline, but again nothing major.

I have a face-to-face job interview tomorrow for a summer job in a call centre. I have to take part in a role-playing assessment, a competency test and then an interview. I'm absolutely terrified! My skin just makes me even more anxious because I'll be paranoid all the time that they're staring at my acne and judging me. I really really REALLLY hope I don't break out in the next 24 hours!!
